A memorial music concert has raised a four-figure sum for a hospice rebuilding project.

Bob Latham died last year and to commemorate the anniversary of his passing, an event was organised last month for him in Bristol.

Bob, who lived in Clevedon, was a former music teacher and well-known with choirs.

His daughter Katy Latham said: “Dad touched the lives of so many people, many of whom were there at the concert in his memory – either singing, playing or as members of the audience.

“It was a most extraordinary evening and a very moving and fitting tribute to such a well-respected and much-loved man.

“We would like to let everyone know the concert was a great success – a very moving and uplifting evening – and we raised £1,075 for St Peter’s Hospice, through the retiring collection and donations for interval refreshments.”

The money will go to the hospice’s Room To Care Appeal which aims to rebuild the inpatients unit.
